New Tilt Sensor Helps to Prevent Unsafe Working Conditions
HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa., February 17, 2016 – The Fredericks Company, an industry-leading innovator and manufacturer of tilt and vacuum measurement products, introduces the 0729-1761-99 Dual Axis CAN Bus SAE J1939 Inclinometer that can be used to prevent unsafe operation of industrial machinery.
The inclinometer measures and signals tilt from a level position in applications such as:
- Construction machinery
- Agricultural machinery
- Boom lifts
- Forestry vehicles
- Scissor lifts
- Telescopic handlers
The inclinometer uses a Fredericks TrueTILT wide-range electrolytic tilt sensor and signal conditioner to provide reliable tilt measurement. The device is ideal for measuring the angular movement of industrial machinery in applications that require a wide operating range and exceptional accuracy. Contained in a durable high-temperature Noryl plastic housing with urethane potting, the inclinometer can withstand extreme environmental conditions.
“The inclinometer enhances operational safety of heavy machinery by measuring the position of vehicles,” said Heidi McKenna, president of The Fredericks Company. “Because it is extremely accurate, rugged and versatile, the inclinometer is well suited for use in a wide range of industrial vehicles.”
Additional benefits of the inclinometer include low power consumption, small size, long life and minimal output drift. Controller area network (CAN) specifications are factory set according to user requirements, with the standard unit using the Society of Automotive Engineers J1939 vehicle bus protocol. The inclinometer is IP66 rated, CE certified and RoHS compliant. It includes supply voltage of +6 V DC to +40 V DC, ±25° dual axis measurement and operating temperature of -40 °C to +85 °C.
With an established history of outstanding customer support, The Fredericks Company designs and assembles their products at their Pennsylvania-based facility, where they maintain full control over production of their devices.
